Believe it or not, 2018 is flying by, and Spring will be here in a month. I, for one, am excited for this time of rebirth and warmer weather. Many of us are refocusing our goals, and of course attending a wellness event (or two) is on the agenda. These 5 wellness events, ranging from under $100 for a wellness expo to over $3,000 for a retreat, are for those seeking anything from a life-changing experience to a day of self-care and new connections.
